Historic Brattonsville

The county I live in (York County, SC) has a TON of history and Brattonsville is just one of those historical sites. This is a 775 Acre Revolutionary War, living history site.  225 years ago, the Battle of Huck’s Defeat was waged on the Bratton Plantation. The plantation was also used in the filming of the Revolutionary War movie, The Patriot with Mel Gibson.

Jeanne taking her pictures.  We made it through the main house before the rain came down and we hunkered down in the barn until it let up.

Since we were the only visitors on site, we sort of snuck past the “Do Not Enter” barriers to get to the attic.  =)
